Almost like spring today. I did a couple of loops of the Brimbelles and once round the conversation to warm up. Snow was generally good - although on the lower half of the Brimbelles a mix of hard snow in the shade and sticky snow in the sun - which made both descents and climbs interesting. One or two bare patches forming. There must be about 30/40cm of snow depth on the runs.
